T-Negative was a media science fiction fanzine by Ruth Berman.

T-Negative was one the the first fanzines devoted to Star Trek, released during the original broadcast of the television series. The title of the fanzine refers to the character Mr. Spock's bloodtype, which was T-Negative.

In her editorial for issue 1, Ruth Berman wrote about starting her fanzine; In November 1968 I starting watching Star Trek, mainly because Juanita Coulson had recommended it so highly in Yandro. By December, I d gotten Eleanor Arnason hooked on it, too, and by December she mmade the classic remark, 'We could write that too'...
